Theme Support

Out of the box vue-switches supports a default, bulma, bootstrap themes. To use them you can do as follows:

Providing no theme or color props would render a switch of default theme and color.

 <switches v-model="enabled"></switches>

Available colors for default are default, red, blue, green, and yellow, and orange.

<switches v-model="enabled" theme="bulma" color="default"></switches>

Available colors for Bulma are default, primary, red, blue, green, and yellow.

In addition support for bootstrap can be used as follows:

<switches v-model="enabled" theme="bootstrap" color="danger"></switches>

Available colors for bootstrap are default, primary, success, info, warning, and danger.


Out of the box vue-switches has two styles: default and bold. By default the switch is not bold. To enable the bold style you can set type-bold to true like this:

<switches v-model="enabled" type-bold="true"></switches>

A demo of all themes and styles can be seen here.

Making Your Own Themes

Vue Switcher has a base class of .vue-switcher. For an unchecked switch a class of .vue-switcher--unchecked is applied. Lastly, for the theme and color props a class is also applied. So for a bulma theme of color primary the classes .vue-switcher-theme--bulma and .vue-switcher-color--primary.


<switches v-model="enabled" type-bold="false" theme="custom" color="blue"></switches>

Would render the classes .vue-switcher-theme--custom and .vue-switcher-color--blue. Sass for this theme could look like:

.vue-switcher-theme--custom {
    &.vue-switcher-color--blue {
        div {
            background-color: lighten(blue, 10%);
            &:after {
                // for the circle on the switch 
                background-color: darken(blue, 5%);
        &.vue-switcher--unchecked {
            div {
                background-color: lighten(blue, 30%);
                &:after {
                    background-color: lighten(blue, 10%);

For better understanding, below is how the class object is rendered.

classObject () {
            const {color, enabled, theme, typeBold, disabled} = this;
            return {
                'vue-switcher': true,
                ['vue-switcher--unchecked']: !enabled,
                ['vue-switcher--disabled']: disabled,
                ['vue-switcher--bold']: typeBold,
                ['vue-switcher--bold--unchecked']: typeBold && !enabled,
                [`vue-switcher-theme--${theme}`]: color,
                [`vue-switcher-color--${color}`]: color,
